  1. Leasing, Loaning, Buying, Rescuing
    I've been taking lessons since 2018 and now my mom has finally allowed me to start looking for a horse. She found an AQH filly. Should I get a weanling?I have been working with my trainer's (well now former trainer as I am finding a barn to board a weanling) gelding for a bit. We already put in...
  2. Horse Talk
    Good day all! Last night I spoke with someone that led to be the best thing ever happening. In short, I'm getting my Ren back! :D Story Time So I got Ren back in the last week of October in 2019. It was thanks to getting her that I discovered this forum actually. She was a 6 month old...
  3. Horse Health
    Hello all, I may be getting a little baby of only 3 months old. She is being weaned early due to current owners circumstances/reasons. I'm considering getting this baby as I'm already getting a 6 month old colt from close to the same area anyway and the two would have each other for company...
  4. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    This is my first horse and the difference in unsolicited opinions is overwhelming. From bits, to care to feed to saddles to everything horse related everyone is always saying something different, I just do what I feel is best for myself and my horse. she’s a 2 year old filly and my cousins who...
  5. Horse Health
    I’ve been storing my horse at a private horse stall for awhile now, and the owner of the horse barn called me and said that her yearling colt got out of his stall and in with my 3 year old filly (was caught red handed mounting my filly). I am personally livid and very unhappy about this due to...
  6. Grooming, clipping, bathing & equipment used
    So I've got some clippers and I need to give my filly a clip. I worked on some desensitizing and did clip her a bit, but it's harder/trickier than I orginally though it was going to be. I've never clipped a horse before, so I'd love any tips you guys have! Currently I'm going for a bib clip...
  7. Horse Health
    My filly, Melody, has started to rub her neck on the trees in her pasture and rubbing the hair off around the base and now the underside as well. She's naturally been an itchy baby who loves scratches, but in the last little while, it seems to have gotten progressively worse and quickly. I've...
  8. Horse Talk
    Well, life took an extremely unexpected turn today. I found out that there are a couple of yearlings that going to get sent to slaughter in the next day or two. No auction no other chances at finding a home, no nothing, just straight to slaughter. Well, I asked for more information and I...

    Soo....I did a thing.... A lady that boards at the same stable I do has 3 mares at her property that had foals. I went and saw said foals. I got my heart stolen by a little filly xD So, meet Melody. She's a quarter horse and in these pics when I first met her, she was only ten days old...
  10. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hello!! I just wanted to make a thread to pick some of your brains a little bit. (Somewhat irrelevant background info: When I was in high school, I used to buy cheap two year olds from local breeders and train them to sell to nice people. Most of these colts had been super well-handled since...
  11. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hey y'all!! I'm going to be starting my almost 3yr old Filly this summer! And I thought I'd see what tips y'all have? This will be my first time Colt starting! I'm super excited to do this with my wonderful trainer. What have you found to work for you when starting your young ones? What are...
  12. Horse Talk
    My grandma's pony (about 30 in tall) is rather lonely with being the only horse on the farm. A few days ago, I came across a post on FB of a mini filly for sale. She's only 5 months old and absolutely adorable. And now, I'm considering getting this little baby so that my grandma's pony can have...
  13. Horse Feeds, Feeding and Nutrition
    I just recently won a weanling solid pinto filly. As of right now, I am doing research on feed because the food she came on is too expensive for my family and they'd like to have her switched as soon as possible. Right now she is only 5 months old. (Late April baby). She came on hay cubes, red...
  14. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I recently stumbled across this trainer and her method of working with horses which is something i haven't really seen before. It looks pretty interesting and I think it's the approach I may need to take with my mare Roxy since she has a similar personality to that show jumper in the video. I...
  15. Horse Breeds, Registrations and Brands
    Hey everyone :) So my grandma had 2 ponies that she got roughly 6 years ago. The one was a rescue as she'd been very abused to the point she'd freak out if you picked up a whip or even just a stick despite standing a few feet away and not even directing your body towards her. She was also...
  16. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    So I have been blessed with a super sweet 6 month old filly that I've named Ren. I've only had this filly about 8 days now but she's honestly blowing my mind. Before I got her, she was only semi halter broke and was introduced to picking up her feet and that's it. I didn't do anything with her...
  17. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hey everyone! I just brought a nine month old anglo arab filly. I am new to training foals and would love some tips! What type of things should I be working on with her? She has had some basic handling such as having her feet picked up, been rugged, floated and stabled. Other than that she is a...
  18. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I am trying to get my 2 year old TB filly to move for me and not getting any progress. She seems completely desensitized to the whip or any sort of pressure and will just stand there or fight with me. When I first began doing exercises with her she was responding accurately. Now when I hit the...
  19. Horse Conformation Queries and Critique
    Hi, I'm new here. What do you think this mare shows potential for? She's a 2 year old 97.7% foundation QH 17.6% Doc Bar. I personally can go into any discipline but what does she look like she'd be good for...
  20. Horse Conformation Queries and Critique
    Hello Everyone, It's been a while since I've been on here. Some of you may have remembered me posting about a stray horse that wandered onto our yard that I later bought at auction so she wouldn't go for meat and named her Faith because I was taking a giant leap of Faith that she wasn't crazy...
